We started with aiming to fund the build of a new premises for a kindergarten in the heart of the village of Akurala to obviate the need for pre-school children to travel and thereby encourage attendance. By raising money for the initial build costs and contributing to the on-going costs, KFA hopes that the kindergarten can provide an early introduction to spoken English and therefore maximise the children of Akurala's opportunities at preparatory school and beyond.
The under 5s that were unable to travel to and from the nearest kindergarten would meet in a local house with no sanitation facilities, or failing that some did not attend kindergarten at all. This put these already under-privileged children at a disadvantage when starting preparatory school.

We have now reached a point in the build where the school is open and running classes for over 25 pre-school students. Additionally, our building provides a space for the after-school English classes to be held. These classes have gained the attendance of almost all of the children at the local preparatory school and have been a huge success!

By providing these children with the best possible early years of education, we hope that this will in turn help their parents as well as the wider community.
